What is a Social Security Benefit Statement?
A Social Security 1099 or 1042S Benefit Statement, also called an SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S, is a tax form that shows the total amount of benefits you received from Social Security in the previous year. It is mailed out each January to people who receive benefits and tells you how much Social Security income to report to the IRS on your tax return.
- Noncitizens who live outside of the United States receive the SSA-1042S instead of the SSA-1099.
- The forms SSA-1099 and SSA-1042S are not available for people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
- A replacement SSA-1099 or SSA-1042S is typically available for the previous tax year after February 1.
- If you don’t have access to a printer, you can save the document on your computer or laptop and email it.
